Boise State University’s Cynthia Clark Recognized for Her Research in Nursing Education

Cynthia Clark, professor emeritus in the School of Nursing at Boise State University in Iowa, received the inaugural Marilyn H. Oermann Award for Distinguished Research in Nursing Education from the National League for Nursing.

National League for Nursing Chair Kathleen Poindexter said the award “recognizes Dr. Clark’s scholarship that has been based on a sound foundation of evidence and has significantly impacted students, faculty, organizational systems, and the environment. She has served as a leader in the science of nursing education and as a mentor to future generations of nursing scholars.”

Professor Clark taught at Boise State for 12 years. Her work promotes civility, inclusion, and belonging to create work and learning environments where all members are valued and can be productive. Her reality-based interventions, models, and assessments provide strategies and best practices that can help prevent, measure, and address incivility.

“In the School of Nursing, we have always known and valued Cindy’s expertise as an educator and her leading scholarship in the area of civility,” said Amy Spurlock, associate divisional dean of Boise State’s School of Nursing. “This award reflects her international acclaim in this arena. We remain very proud of her continued accomplishments and outstanding achievements.”

Dr. Clark is a graduate of Southern Illinois University Carbondale and holds a bachelor’s degree in nursing from Boise State University. She earned a master’s degree in human development and family studies from Colorado State University and a Ph.D. in higher education administration from the University of Idaho.
